tango heads and shoulders

couple dancing at Spitalfields

As the following posts are going to cover some of my thoughts about finding an image that displays the essence of tango I’m starting with one of the favourite angles of many photographers. I think this is angle is favoured partly because those new to the dance are captivated by the expressions of the dancers (they normally shoot faces or feet) and partly because many milongas are so crowded that it’s difficult to capture other angles without getting in the way.
